    It would be wonderful if it would be a full album, though it seems more likely that it will include their one song collaboration "Turn Up The Sunshine" -- but we'll find out soon. It is definitely creating a buzz online.

    It seems now to have been confirmed that it is just the one song which will be featured on the soundtrack of the new Minions movie.

    Thanks for this; very exciting, if true! Great potential to expose millions of kids to the magic of Diana.

    Great news! I was thinking the same. My husband also mentioned that perhaps the song could also be eligible later on for an Oscar nomination [I know I'm getting ahead of myself here, but it's a nice thought]! The movie is due to premiere at a film festival in June, ahead of its theatrical release, so I'm sure we will be hearing the new song anytime in the next few weeks

    This has not been confirmed but I did notice that there is a second Record Store Day drop on Sat June 18th, for any releases that were originally scheduled for the first drop in April but were delayed. I remember that Diana's collab with Tame Impala was originally due for release as a 45 rpm vinyl single for Record Store Day in April...so perhaps that vinyl release will still be coming in June?

    Let’s just hope it’s a really good song.

    Produced by Jack Antonoff, the star-studded 19-song album also features the likes of St. Vincent, Phoebe Bridgers, Brockhampton and Antonoff’s band Bleachers. The record is set to arrive on July 1 via Decca to coincide with the movie’s global theatrical release [[pre-order/pre-save here). Gonna be huge,

    One step at a time now.

    Turn Up the Sunshine is written by Jack Antonoff, Sam Dew, Patrik Berger, and Kevin Parker. Jack Antonoff posted about the new track and the forthcoming soundtrack on his Instagram today. You can find the post at the link below, which includes a photo of Diana during the sessions, along with a video teaser of the sessions [swipe to view], in which you can hear a preview of the track. Diana sounds awesome! It sounds like a fun and funky song. It looks like Verdine White of Earth, Wind and Fire also played on this track.

    Thanks Carlo. Seems as if Diana is not one of the songwriters…so no Academy award for her lol. But back to the song, as I said earlier, her collaborating with Jack was a great decision.

    She seems to be getting more media interest from this one song collaboration then when she released the “Thank You” album.

    hi Carlo, thanks for the info.! [[but I also saw no Diana pic or clip of the song, really disappointed, but his post is great!)

    For those that can’t see the picture or hear the song. All you have to do is swipe the screen. There are a few slides.

    Edit to add: sorry, that’s what I do on my phone. Not sure how that works on a computer.

    Diana has posted the snippet on her Twitter feed and confirmed the May 20th release date. The snippet sounds great. Hope it is added to an expanded release of Thank You to coincide with the UK your.

    This sounds like a hit to me in the UK.

    I hadn't picked up on the expanded release of Thank You. Is there any information about it please?

    I'm cautiously optimistic. Although a hit would be great, I’ll settle for actually liking it without rationalizing.

    Diana’s on fire in that short audio clip. Did she finally connect with the right people to make quality music? It has been many decades……

    Right! Oh man, I can't wait for this. It's just a snippet, but if it's any indication of how the rest of the song sounds, this is going to be fire!

    Hopefully if the song takes off, it might ignite renewed interest in the “Thank You” album.
    I wonder if she has any UK tv show appearances lined up this summer?.

    I really hope she makes every effort to perform this live on Glastonbury!

    I might even settle for lip syncing….

    Not too much in the snippet on her Twitter but the TikTok one shows really potential

    Thanks for the heads up on the clip posted to TikTok. I didn't realize that there's a different, much longer snippet on there. I don't have TikTok but managed to find it via a Google search. Here is the link for anyone interested in hearing a longer audio clip. Sounds awesome! Press or click the play button on the cover art for the track...

    I am far from being all tech savvy but I think if you have Facebook, you can sign in TikTok. When your on the login screen for TikTok, you select sign in using Facebook [[if that makes sense). I searched for Diana Ross and then clicked on “sounds”. If you scroll down you will see the new song. It’s a full minute clip.

    Must be May 20 it's coming out, not today the 13th. If you go through thread and links there's conflicting info as to whether it's 13th or 20th.

    I expect hardly any promotion, or maybe the team behind Tame Impala does something. So....in stead of complaining, I've done what I could.

    I wrote all the entertainment shows in the Netherlands, with link to the tiktok clip, wrote to Dutch radiostations in that genre, wrote to Foxnews and CNN.

    Maybe we can all help? A mail is simply made and is more positive than complaining that it might gets no attention at all.

    To make clear, this is not to bash Ms Ross, just to help her, without her asking and permission.

    What do you think?

    It can't hurt and yes I think radio stations do absolutely listen to viewers requests- especially the smaller college stations

    Promote, Promote, let’s get loud on this! It might be her last hit and what a great way to go out [[or retire, or fade out…) with a bang!

    Don’t get me wrong, I wish her a long and prosperous life.

    This work with Tame Impala is a once in a life time chance to get the music of Diana to be heard by a bigger and younger audience.

    [[And to cause some recalcitrance to universal, let’s show there is interest and money to be made….expanded editions anyone?)

    To make it concrete and inspire:
    - send out messages to local gossip channels
    - local talk magazine like talk shows
    - asked BBC if they will broadcast the Glastonbury legends slot live
    - asked Fathom Events if they can broadcast the Glastonbury concert at cinema's like they have done with Diamond Diana

    The more voices we raise, the more noise we make....

    Anyway, I really like the snippet on TikTok and can't wait for the full version

    As much as I love your enthusiasm Hitsville, and support the idea of actively promoting this track, I think there is a good chance that it will get a lot of exposure, with or without the promotional efforts of Diana and the fanbase. The song is on a soundtrack for one of the most popular children's movie franchises, next to Disney's Frozen. You can walk into any toy store or toy department in North America and find Minions branded merchandise of all kinds. Having this track featured as the lead single and as the first track of the soundtrack itself, may also mean it will likely be featured in the movie, or at the very least, during the credits. This will guarantee widescale exposure. Now it's just a matter of how the general public will receive it. Time will tell. I am optimistic

    I agree. If there is a chance of success for an older lady, this is it.
